SSRI/SNRI Antidepressants for Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome


SSRI/SNRI Antidepressants for Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Now they are starting to name quite a few more anti-depressants can help with Fibromyalgia than when I was first diagnosed 8 years ago.

I tried 2 of the 3 drugs that were originally considered to help cure Fibromyalgia. Savella I was violently allergic to and my arms had turned bright red and had huge red, swollen, areas all over them that were starting to blister. Very painful on its own. I gather they would have continued swelling all over my body if I had not stopped.

The Cymbalta helped my Bipolar depression for over a year. I was pretty stable on it, but it did nothing for the Fibromyalgia.

Absolutely none of these suggestions I post that I find on the web have helped me. That DOESN’T mean it won’t help you though. Never pass up a promising chance to help your Fibromyalgia because we are all different.
